Our why is fueled by the urgent need to prevent such tragedies, focusing on education, awareness, and advocating for peaceful conflict resolution. These fundamental pillars form the essence of our commitment, aiming to honor Jared's memory and contribute to building a safer, more informed community."

​​The Impacts of Gun Violence

One in every two Americans is impacted by gun violence in their lifetime. Every year nearly 40,000 Americans are killed by gun violence leading to over 100 deaths a day. Over the past decade gun violence deaths increased by over 20%.

Gun violence is any violence committed by the use of a gun including suicide, homicide, police shootings, unintentional firearm death rates, and unknown causes. Unintentional firearm death rates are highest among Black Americans and American Indian/Alaska Natives. Nearly one-quarter of all unintentional firearm deaths are 0-19 years old.

Our Mission

Is to educate and empower youth through effective communication, with a focus on conflict resolution skills and mental wellness.

"At the heart of our pillars lies a commitment to empowering youth through education,

fostering understanding through awareness, and

driving positive change through advocacy."
